Design Team Members' Basic Responsibilities:

NOTE: No previous DT experience is necessary!

I send out an email very early (1 month before...**)  with sketches designated for each week of the next month. They are due back on Thursdays by midnight AST. I will post all of the creations at S:CY on the designated Fridays.

DT members choose 2 or 3 (YES: YOU CHOOSE) for the whole month to complete and send back to me by the noted due dates. Of those sketch choices, one will be a card sketch, designed by our Senior Designer, Ann Seleshanko.
(Please Note: Supply lists for your creations are not necessary unless digital elements are included. They must be listed.)
Comment on the work of your fellow DT members and anyone who provides us with a link to THEIR work. :o)
Display our "I Design for" Blinkie on your blog and wherever else permitted.
Tell others about S:CY and invite visitors to the site.
Term is for 6 months: April 2011- September 2011
[**except for April 2011 which will have a shorter turn-around time of 2 weeks for the newly chosen DT.]


You'll receive a "Proud Designer for..." blinkie to display.
You will be able to choose 2-3  of the 4-5 sketches provided EVERY MONTH. No "ASSIGNMENTS!!"
Your work and your Blog link will receive excellent exposure on our beautiful Sketch Blog when we do our weekly posts.

There will be a professionally written "Designer of the Month" feature which means more exposure for you and your work! (Participation is optional.)
Ali can provide you with a well-written letter of reference should you ever need one with regard to your time as a DT Member at S:CY. There is no time limit to this benefit, and I will do it as many times as required for you.   

Since we are not affiliated with any store we cannot send out kits or other incentives to our Designers.
 Questions? Please feel free to contact Ali MacDonald, at

Thanks for visiting our friendly Sketch Blog, and applying for our DT positions.
